Workshop, a "Fancy Food Court," Eyes March Opening

Workshop, a "fancy food court” led by Butcher & Bee owner Michael Shemtov and Chef Jonathan Ory, plans to open this March at 1503 King Street at the Pacific Box & Crate site. The business will feature a shared kitchen and dining space with a rotating roster chef-driven restaurant concepts.

The space includes indoor and outdoor seating that can accommodate upward of 300 people. There will also be on-site parking for guests.

The initial lineup of tenants at Workshop include:

  • A “Tex and Mex” concept from Pitmaster John Lewis
  • Pink Bellies, a eatery based on Chef/Owner Thai Phi's Vietnamese food truck
  • Slice Co., a wood-fired pizza place from New York City transplant Todd Lucey
  • JD Loves Cheese, a grilled cheese, soup, and salad collaboration between Butcher & Bee executive pastry chef Cynthia Wong and her husband, John David Harmon, a wine professional
  • A "progressive, vegetable-forward Korean concept" by Chef Ory
  • Bad Wolf Coffee

The food vendors will have occupancy varying from 1 to 12 months. Interested Workshop tenants can contact [email protected].

Hours of operation will be Sunday to Wednesday from 11 am to 9 pm and Thursday to Saturday from 11 am to 10 pm.
